After a short absence from the Tejano music scene, Elida Y Avante's long awaited compact disc has finally hit the record stores According to lead vocalist Elida Reyna, the band has set aside previous differences with their former label, Voltage Records, and is ready to give fans what they've been waiting for. "Algo Eterno," their first CD under Tejas Records, has been selling really well since its release. Reyna and bassist Noel, who helped produce the record, are proud with their latest collaboration. "We did a little bit of everything on this new CD. It's basically our own style. We did it the way we felt like doing it," Reyna said. "When you listen to 'Algo Eterno' you'll hear how very special it is. When we play the songs live we get phenomenal response. We put everything on the line for these new songs and Tejas Records was the label that understood the best. I can't tell you how good we feel because suddenly everything is in place." Elida Y Avante erupted onto the Tejano scene in 1994 with their first CD "Atrevete," which produced hit singles like "Luna Llena." The group has won and been nominated for various awards since their gold record effort. In 1995 they received the TTMA Industry Awards for "Rising Group of the Year" and "Rising Female Vocalist of the Year." This year the band won Billboard Magazine's prestigious "Revelacion Del Año" award. With all their achievements in the past two years and despite a few difficulties, the band still remains focused. "This CD took a lot of effort and we want to make sure our supporters enjoy every song," Reyna said. "I think the wait was well worth the result," said accordionist Cande Aguilar, Jr. "We have grown as a band, and that is what making music together is all about."
